Oil Plugged after Cargo Ship Collision off India

Thursday, August 12, 2010

According to an August 10 report from the Associated Press, Indian authorities have plugged a fuel leak in a container ship that collided into another cargo vessel and spewed 500 tons of oil into the Arabian Sea. The Panamanian-registered MSC Chitra smashed into the St. Kitts-registered MV-Khalijia-II near Jawahar Lal Nehru port. The accident caused the MSC Chitra to run aground and list heavily. Its fuel and lubricants spilled into the sea. The principal port of Mumbai was to remain closed until at least Wednesday, August 11, because of the spill and 300 cargo containers in the water, causing a navigational hazard.
